A Big Thank You A Big Thank You for Supporting Our Keep the Nation Singing Appeal Whilst we are all too aware that countless musicians, many of them NYCGB alumni, are currently facing severe financial hardship, we appealed to you, our supporters, friends, customers and alumni to help us stay afloat in 2020 by donating to our Keep the Nation Singing appeal. Through your collective generosity you donated a staggering £25,195, which alongside other funding and government help schemes has enabled to reduce our year-end (30 September 2020) deficit to around £100,000. We are all incredibly grateful and moved by your generosity, which has not only helped us stay open but also kept our community engaged and singing throughout this crisis. Anne Besford, NYCGB Chief Executive said: We’re so grateful to all of our valued friends and supporters who have donated to our Keep the Nation Singing Appeal, during what has been the most challenging year in NYCGB’s 37 year history. We’ve been absolutely overwhelmed by your kindness and generosity, particularly at a time when we know many livelihoods across the industry are at risk. We can’t thank you enough.
